The 2014 Oscar trailer "Here We Go!" stars Ellen DeGeneres and 250 good-looking, tuxedo-clad, nimble-limbed male and female dancers shaking their bodies to the sounds of Fitz and the Tantrums' "The Walker." The trailer was directed by Paul Feig, among whose credits are the hit comedies Bridesmaids, starring Kristen Wiig and Melissa McCarthy, and The Heat, with McCarthy and Sandra Bullock.

Now, if the Academy can come up with such a cool, sleek, exuberant Oscar trailer / musical number, why can't they come up with an equally cool, sleek, exuberant show – or at least equally cool, sleek, exuberant Oscar ceremony musical numbers? Below, check out Ellen DeGeneres as The Walker (conveniently wearing sneakers) and 250 talented dancers in the 2014 Oscar trailer "Here We Go!" in addition to interviews with DeGeneres and Paul Feig, and an "Oscar 2014 trailer" behind-the-scenes clip.
